TAS Careers

Current students are part of a generation where one in two people will have a degree and individuals will average 17 jobs and five careers over their lifetime. Toowoomba Anglican School believes that to help prepare students for life after school, they need to be aware of a range of different workplaces, understand how to work with people of all ages and have experience interacting with adults in the work environment.

Successful learning occurs when students are engaged and motivated, when learning activities pique their curiosity, personal interest and increasing level of independence. In order to create activities to not only sustain motivation and engagement but also stimulate brain growth through the adolescent years we have expanded the Gateway Program.

Each year, students will take part in a variety of programs designed to develop higher order thinking with new real world skills.

The Gateway Program compliments and supports the curriculum, but also go beyond the classroom to give the students extra real world experiences.

We are confident that the Gateway to the Future Program will maintain engagement, provide a depth of opportunities in a range of relevant real world areas, give the students a break from traditional forms of learning, and stimulate brain development in areas of higher order thinking.

Pathway Partners

Current students are part of a generation where one in two people will have a degree and individuals will average 17 jobs and five careers over their lifetime. Toowoomba Anglican School believes that to help prepare students for life after school, they need to be aware of a range of different workplaces, understand how to work with people of all ages and have experience interacting with adults in the work environment.

Pathway Partners are members of our community who help us provide our Secondary Years students with advice, guidance and experience regarding potential career pathways. During the Career Insights sessions, students select career areas they are interested in learning more about. Here, the Pathway Partner will talk with the students about their individual pathway to the career they have now. No two stories are alike, which shows the students that they do not need to have a definitive answer now to the question: ‘What do you want to do when you leave school?’ 


Coffee & Conversations

Workplace visits are a perfect way to gain a better understanding of any career. Here the students see firsthand what skills, processes and work is used day-to-day. A Coffee and Conversation session is arranged for students who would like a more individual discussion about a particular career. Senior students have the opportunity to undertake Internships in career areas that truly interest them. This is an excellent way to not only confirm a decision about future career options, but it may also confirm that it indeed may not be the right choice.
